I'm one of those fools with 9 Transmute-specced Alchemists. (I used to have 17, but decided that I needed the extra $15 a month more than Blizzard did.)Using Living Transmutes, I can make 135 Volatile Air every day (plus another couple dozen random volatiles from procs). If I need Truegold, I can make a half-stack of bars just as easily. If I want to get fancy, I respec one to making flasks and start pumping out mats for a Vial of the Sands every day. The Living Transmutes is worth about 2700g in daily profit with my server's prices, which isn't bad for basically staring at the load screen for an extra 10 minutes. Besides, what else are you going to do with your alts? The only professions that stack - are worth duplicating - are Alchemy, Jewelcrafting and Tailoring. Of the three, Alchemy is by far the least painful to level, both in time and expense. Alchemy is one of the few crafting professions that gets everything it needs at 75. After using RAF to skip through most of the 1-60 content, questing the rest of the way can be done in 3 Outland zones and 2 Northrend zones (assuming you don't just hire an 85 to tear apart some instances for you). It's a minor time sink with all the leveling buffs we have now.Alchemy is also comes with its own i359 trinket and a significant reduction in flask expenses (cauldron's aside), so there's some additional gold bonuses to having it on all of your active characters as well.
